City Hall (206 S. Main St.) will be sold and renovated as Greenville leaders plan to relocate the City’s operations next year.

M. Peters Group will purchase the building for $12.5 million, but there’s a catch. The City has the right to retain ownership of the first five floors of the building if it doesn’t reach a deal on its new space.

The City hopes to purchase two floors near Falls Park (55 Camperdown Way), moving several offices:

  • Mayor’s Office
  • City Manager’s Office
  • City Attorney
  • Economic Development
  • Communications and Engagement
  • Parks, Recreation, and Tourism

All other City departments will move to Halton Road.

What factors influenced this decision?

The city considered multiple factors in making its decision to relocate:

  • Cost
    • 206 S. Main St. | ~$16 million to keep the first five floors of the building and renovate with a projected annual revenue of $100,000
    • 55 Camperdown Way | $14.3 million for two floors with a projected annual revenue of $168,000
  • Construction timeline
    • 206 S. Main St. | Three years
    • 55 Camperdown Way | One year
  • Other benefits of 55 Camperdown Way
    • More efficient communication and collaboration among teams with less floors
    • Open floor plan
    • Room for growth

No matter where operations end up, City Council plans to move its chambers to the first level of either building and create a larger waiting area, making public meetings more accessible.
